Fracking Could Topple Anasazi Ruins

ALBUQUERQUE (CN) - The U.S. Bureau of Land Management's approval of 130 fracking permits in the New Mexico's Four Corners region threatens an environment that includes extensive prehistoric Native American relics, Navajo environmentalists claim in court.
Diné Citizens Against Ruining Our Environment and three other groups asked a federal judge to vacate the permits and enjoin fracking in the Mancos Shale unless the BLM complies with the National Environmental Policy Act and the National Historic Preservation Act.
